Jon Stewart's take on "In God We Trust" vote - HILARIOUS, so glad Ron voted NAY!

This is a continuation of a Topic from yesterday, except now we have Jon Stewart's take. This is sidesplittingly FUNNY! So proud that Ron voted NAY!! I'm sure he did the same on the baseball deal, too.

yea, going to the

yea, going to the conservativebyte.com site was unbelievably full of zombies. Can't even think for themselves.

A few good troopers over there fighting the tide. But no chance against so many people who are so full of hate and ignorance.

Can Jon Stewart

be any better?

The only way would be if he endorsed Ron Paul!

Congress and Idiots

To paraphrase Mark Twain, "but you repeat yourself."

Although, I feel it necessary to point out that that is a broad generalization, and actually only applies to nearly all of the individuals in Congress.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I thought the GOP's motto was

'Trust in Israel', and by their overwhelming praise, they must consider it at least an equal?? That saying, since, the official book of religious guidance comes from the Talmud, written by the zealous views of men called Pharisee's. And, a survey taken in 2010 published by Israeli website Ynet, shows 42% of Israeli's being secular, it shows the GOP gives praise to a nation driven by political arrogance, and not by God's laws given to Moses.
So, what is Congress refering to as 'God', the poltical arrogance of man or the Creator? By the way they legislate for their purse strings, blindly support Israel, promote murderous warfare, they must be 'trusting in themselves'.

Critical Point.

This is a very important issue, topic or subject. It will be discussed in churches, homes, offices & blogs. Depending on peoples' inclinations they will give it different weight-age.

It seems the GOP discussed this issue without Ron Paul, behind his back, then threw this spanner in the works. Some of them know or they are unaware that RP has done his home-work on this matter, they canNot surprise him. He only has to be consistent as he has always been, i.e. to remain steadfast to the Constitution. He does look back and knows history, and can foresee too, the repercussions. He is Not hungry for votes or the presidency, if they come his way then well & good. He takes this opportunity to broadcast the Message of Peace, plus other related subjects. Obviously, he is standing for elections in america, and bound to american traditions, RP also knows his audience is not just in america.

A thread was opened on DP about 3rd party options, I did not read or follow it, now I think it has to be considered seriously. At this moment MSM in most countries are not following the nomination debates, but after this process is completed then it will be different, - they will focus & report, give coverage, surely its an important election that sets the course of govt of the strongest country. I recall Ross Perot was heard world-wide.

Therefore, Ron Paul has to remain on the stage, continue to raise the level of discourse (without disconnection), and hopefully gain the presidency.

RP supporters & DPers have to rise up to the challenge.

true

Ron Paul's campaign already has changed the discussion. Most notably, other candidates are discussing the FED.

Ron Paul remains ahead of other candidates in commitment to truth on important issues like the drug war (war at home) and on bringing our troops home (while at the same time removing ourselves from many unnecessary and plainly wrong foreign entanglements).

The biggest advance is that the presidential campaign discussion now includes ideas which have been there all along but which rarely have been discussed.

As for "third party options" the simple fact is that many Ron Paul voters will not be voting for any other GOP candidates. Last time, Ron Paul did not vote GOP in the presidential election and whether or not he chooses to run independent/third party he'll not be voting for any big spending interventionist GOP nominees.

My god can beat up your god.

GOP's Message or Dirty Trick.

the article says -"The resolution overwhelmingly passed the House". It does not give the number of Yes votes, only 9 No votes. The hint they are giving is - as if Ron Paul is Not qualified to represent / be candidate of the Republican Party.

This is a dirty trick played at a time when many pressing issues need to be resolved on a "Rational" level, at this juncture the GOP plays the "emotional" card, it shows their ill-intent, and stubborn arrogance.

We are living in dangerous times, there are people with itchy fingers on the trigger button, this is one of them.

be careful where they put those names

Those complaining ought to be careful where they put the name of the god they worship.

Putting the name of their god on a federal reserve note is the same as listing it as author and publisher of the most explicit pornography.

They ought to be complaining because the name of their god is used to sell those notes to a gullible public.

Panties in a twist?

More like brains in their panties. I have never seen so many ignorant so called Christians in one place in my life. I believe in God, but I can't figure out why belief in God makes some people complete idiots and the most hatefilled idiots !

that really is true, I have witnessed it myself.

I find both humor and irony in your comment.
peace sister.

Comment I left after article:

"Seems to me all you people screaming about God do not worship God, but rather, the government. Associating God with anything to do with the government give God a very bad name.

Ron Paul worships God, and wishes to promote the exercise of God's greatest gift to mankind, and that is free will."

Excellent comment

.

think positive

At least he will get a question about this at the next debate for sure. Lets see who really believes in states rights.

freedumb is not free!

Wow, the vast majority of

Wow, the vast majority of those comments on the site were so mind-numbingly stupid.

There are very few things

That Ron Paul could do to lose my loyalty,my praise,my campaigning for him, and my vote. One of them would be to push his (or anyones)religious cult on anyone else.

Exactly, Exactly.

This is exactly what Ron Paul is doing /saying, - to prevent the Fed Govt from imposing any religious motto /slogan on the States or the people. It would set a bad precedent, could lead to other eventualities.

Gotta pick your battles

he should have left this one alone.

He answered a question

He answered a question honestly and consistently.

why would you even post this ? or at least under this title?

You have campaigned harder for Ron Paul than most people...
Do you actually believe that he does not believe in God??

The whole point of him being against this bill, was that he did not want to force the statement (under rule of law) upon the states. Most power insane politicians love to "force" virtually anything upon the American People. He , again, is just standing by his principles of "not forcing" the states to be under the RULE of the Federal Government(except in the positions that the Constitution authorizes.)

perhaps changing your title to..
Ron Paul: I oppose ‘In God We Trust’ bill

would be a better idea.

Sensational headlines

get attention!

Ron Paul follows Constitution.

The Constitution mentions The Creator. The motto "In God We Trust" was promoted through the Fed Reserve notes, i.e. paper dollars which carry this fake slogan, it$ printed on it.

Ron did not say he didn't like the words

His actual words were,
“I would have voted ‘no’ not because I don’t like the motto and don’t think we can use it
but ‘no’ because we were telling the states what to do,” Paul told The Hill.
Again Ron is simply not pushing his (or anyone else's) personal beliefs on the states.
Ron Paul never said "he did not trust in God" and your title is very misleading.

Okay, I get your point, so I put

"Branding" in there. At this point, putting the word "God" on anything our gov't does is an insult to God. But, to force states to do so, is idiocy multiplied.

Better Title : )

Fits the article.

Ron knows the true source of the saying

Like so many things in America, things are not what they seem with "In God we Trust".
Here's what it's from:
AN HYMN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
Brothers and sisters, on this day
Of deathless glory, let us come
United in our glad array
To hymn our fathers’ martyrdom.
Ashes to ashes? Dust to dust?
So let it be! In God we trust.

They died – they died – and we are free.
Take up their cross! Deserve their crown!
The stainless flag of liberty
By man shall not be trodden down!
Ashes to ashes? Dust to dust?
So let it be! In God we trust.

-Aleister Crowley (decidedly NOT Christian by any stretch)
http://hermetic.com/crowley/international/xii/3/a-hymn-for-t...

It is obviously not from

It is obviously not from Crowley, who was from the 1900s. I'm not sure why Lawson is reading anything from a satanist in the first place, but he's been corrected once before on this, by me, so I'm now using his last name. Lawson also claims you can lose your salvation - you'll be glad to know you can't :) God is all powerful.

In God we trust is first popularly found in the Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem:

http://www.hymns.me.uk/star-spangled-banner-hymn.htm

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
